What other discounts are available?
Individuals who are legally blind, or live with someone who is, will be able to apply for a 50 percent discount on their bill.
When this is applied, a television licence for a blind person would cost £79.50 for colour and £26.75 for a black and white TV licence.
To be eligible, applicants will need to prove to the TV Licensing body that they are blind by showing either a Certificate of Visual Impairment (CVI) or a BD8 Certificate.
Other evidence can include a letter from an eye surgeon confirming someone’s blindness or a certificate from someone’s Local Authority would also count as proof to the assessor.
